Heat Pump High Density Thermal Storage

The objective of this research is to design, build and test a residential / light commercial heat pump high density thermal storage (HPT) system. Various high density thermal storage materials, including Zeolite and metal organic framework (MOF) materials, will be evaluated for system size and costs. The research will build a proof-of-concept heat pump high density thermal storage (HPT) prototype to test and demonstrate the feasibility and potential of the proposed technology. This prototype will quantify the potential energy and demand savings benefits of the identified combination of the HPT and determine the controls and other requirements to enable successful load shifting and demand response capability for the developed HPT solution
